How To Claim Your Custom URL On Facebook

When you create a new Facebook page, you are assigned a random URL on the Facebook platform to serve as your page's web address.

Right after creating a page you should customise this URL to make it easier for people to find you, So if you haven't done this already, here is how.





First of all, you need to be an admin on the page to customise this URL. On your Facebook page, click the ABOUT tab in the left side menu.

Beside the USERNAME, you will see an EDIT option.



Your Page's URL should help people find and remember your Page as the username will be your Facebook URL. Don't get too tricky, your business name is usually the best bet.

We chose @thedigitalchimp

At the time of writing, a page required 20 followers to customise a URL, so invite a few friends, get that follower count to 20 and then choose your custom URL.


IMPORTANT Facebook are making it increasingly more difficult to change this once you have set it, so choose wisely the first time!
